Thread: Need some recommendations!

  1. #1

    Default Need some recommendations!

    Hello All,
    My first post to this forum, so go easy. Yes, I am a newbie, but only to Florida and the salt. Been trout fishing up here in the Great Lakes area for some time, and now since the wife and I have invested in a vacation club we'll be making visits to the SW Florida area. We're going to be on Marco the last week of October, so I'm looking for some recommendations for a guide to do some flats or backwater fly fishing then. Appreciate the feedback, thanks!

    Riderfisher: Welcome to the forum! I can't help with Marco fishing, but maybe someone here can provide some insight.

    I'm in Columbus, so not far at all. Hope to get up your way for some steelheading later this fall and winter! I attended CWRU for a couple years up there in University Circle, and became a big Indians fan (go figure.)

    Gave him a try, but he's only fishing out of Boca Grande right now, which is more of a drive from Marco than I want for this trip. Bookmarked his webpage though, for the next time I'm in that area, or in Boston if the time is right.

    He did say he does alot of multi-day charters down in the Everglades, but 1/2 and whole days only out of Boca Grande. Have spoken with 2 or 3 others as well; no worries, I'm having fun learning about how things work down there.

    I did finally get connected last evening with a guide by the name of Capt. Kyle Giampaoli and we set up a day on 10/31. Seems like a good guy, and he's got a pretty nice website at www.tarpondaze.com if anyone wants to check it out.

    Thanks to all for the help!
